The purpose of future husband journaling is visualization. Often, when you are single, it can be easy to fall into a mindset of negativity where you believe that you will never have a significant other. In my novel, “Since When Did Single Mean Sad,” I discuss how the process of Future Husband Journaling mixed with prayer changed my life.
Future Husband Journaling Benefits
☐ It can be a gift to your future partner- Many people decide to gift their Dear Future Husband Journal to their spouses before or shortly after the wedding. Giving your husband a gift from your single season can be a meaningful touch.
☐ It can help you see your growth- Any journaling shows how you grew over time. Even if you never end up sharing anything from this journal, it can be a great way to look back at where you came from
☐ You learn more about what you want in a partner- What better way to find out what you look for in a partner than through the process of journaling to this partner?
There are many ways to go about future husband journaling. Some of the prompts you may use include prayers for your future husband, asking about their day, and more.
